Mobility is designed to be a discreet 10-15 minute daily practice in addition to your normal workout routine. Mobility can be done before or after a workout or at night when you are at home. Some of the mobilisations are very effective before workouts as part of your warm-up and movement preparation strategies. Rolling on the lacrosse ball to mobilize your thoracic spine prior to an overhead workout is an appropriate pre-workout.
The bottom line – be less concerned about when to do the MWOD and be more concerned about addressing your tissue health and range of motion problems. Above all else mobility is about improving your capacity to be in a good position during movement to improve performance and avoid injury.
The difference between Mobility and stretching
Stretching only focuses on lengthening short and tight muscles. Mobilization, on the other hand, is a movement-based integrated full-body approach that addresses all the elements that limit movement and performance including short and tight muscles, soft tissue restriction, joint capsule restriction, motor control problems, joint range of motion dysfunction, and neural dynamic issues. In short, mobilization is a tool to globally address movement and performance problems. – Kelly Starrett
